Thanks to its agreement with Versión Digital (exclusive distributor for Spain of the Royal Opera House’s cinema screenings from its London stage) and the Kinépolis (Madrid y Valencia) and Full (Barcelona) cinemas, the British Council is organising a draw of three free double tickets to see one of the Royal Opera House’s most acclaimed ballet productions this season on Wednesday 5th October at 20.15h.
Inspired by dark and gripping real life events, this Royal Ballet classic depicts the sexual and morbid obsessions of Crown Prince Rudolf leading to the murder-suicide scandal with his mistress Mary Vetsera. The oppressive glamour of the Austro-Hungarian court in the 1880s sets the scene for a suspenseful drama of psychological and political intrigue as Rudolf fixates on his mortality.
Kenneth MacMillan's 1978 ballet remains a masterpiece of storytelling and this revival marks 30 years since the choreographer’s death. Expect to see the Company at its dramatic finest across potent ensemble scenes and some of the most daring and emotionally demanding pas de deux in the ballet repertory.
The invitations will be available for cinemas in Barcelona, Madrid and Valencia. The deadline to enter the draw is Monday 26th September at 11:59 p.m. CET. We'll get in touch with the lucky winners that week.
